New Year’s resolutions

Sometimes I do these in earnest, sometimes I don’t… but a few years ago I decided that I was going to stop taking this as an annual opportunity to beat myself up about all the things I am not. I am also not going to make an epic ‘to do’ list with which to torture myself for the coming year.

Here are my resolutions.

  • To eat more cake. Because I like cake, I am not gaining weight (quietly and persistently the opposite, which has to stop eventually) and if you use brown flour, unrefined sugar and a lot of fruit, it’s almost healthy food anyway. And it makes me happy.
  • To walk more. Because being outside wandering about with people I like is one of the things that makes me happiest, so I’m going to do more of it. Possibly with cake.
  • To have more time doing nothing. This is to include lie ins, early nights, time spent gazing absentmindedly out of the window and the such. Time when I am not economically active and of no discernible use to anyone.
  • To bring an end to greed driven, exploitative capitalism. No one said this list had to be wholly realistic.


Whatever you choose to do with your New Year, I hope it goes well for you. Follow your heart, go with what inspires and uplifts you and may the blessings of inspiration flow your way.
